Its correct except for the output string, the challenge wants it to read:

let output = "The product of \(firstValue) times \(secondValue) is \(product)"

You do not need to explicitly declare firstValue and secondValue as Ints. The output constant is supposed to be a formatted string which will read (based on your chosen integer values) "The product of 1 and 2 is 2."

let firstValue = 1
let secondValue = 2

let product = firstValue * secondValue
let output = "The product of \(firstValue) times \(secondValue) is \(product)"
